my experience with myvitamins

21/02/2013


with regular breakouts despite a good skincare routine there can only be one reason, my diet. i usually switch from one extreme to the other, so i could be eating a super low calorie diet one week and then be extremely gluttonous the next. obviously my skin isn't my best friend because of this. even though i do try to drink as much water as i can a day when beka from lookfantastic asked if i'd like to try some supplements from myvitamins it couldn't be more perfect timing. keeping with the theme of the blog i was sent the ultimate beauty bundle. i was sent these over three weeks ago which has allowed me to make an appropriate judgement, and whether i really did see any physical improvements. what i liked about myvitamins supplements compared to those you can buy from the supermarket is that instead of tubs they are in resealable packets.

out of all four products, the acai berry capsules definitely gave me the biggest improvement. i had always known that acai berrys were a great antioxidant but had never tried them before now. my skin feels a lot more healthier and the overall look is better and brighter, giving me a natural glow. i also know that acai berry's can be beneficial when aiding weight loss (which i am not doing) but when i do want to start shedding excess weight i'm really interesting in trying the total carb blocker. i really do love carbs however i don't think the feeling is mutual. the acai berry and omega 3 were capsules that were easy to swallow with water however i did find the vitamin c and hair, skin and nails tablets a lot harder to take and use on a regular basis. they are to be taken with a meal but the taste of them was disgusting and they were too big to try and swallow, like the capsules. i do think i have seen an improvement in the condition of my nails and hair from using them though. my nails rarely snap anymore and i have less hair breakage when brushing. i think for the price they are definitely worth the money and i will repurchase the acai berry capsules when i have completed this set.

  2. Vitamins are so important! I have a huge arsenal of vitamins to take, but I always forget. I definitely feel miles better when I remember, though.

  3. These sound really cool and they're not too expensive either! I've been hearing lots about aloe Vera water and tablets for a glowing complexion recently - have you ever tried it? Would love to see a review xx

  9. You should totally read Feed Your Face by Dr. Jessica Wu. So much great advice on how diet directly impacts skin health, acne, rosacea, etc. Plus it's a really fun read.
